Termination: Never easy to say goodbye

By Alexander Barthet

Generally, both contractors and owners allow some leeway in their negotiated construction contracts for unexpected delays or less than perfect work. However, there comes a point in every job where repeated delays or nonconforming work forces one to consider termination of the contract and consultation with a construction lawyer. You will quickly learn that you must first review your contract terms and determine the available methods of termination, the specific grounds allowed for termination, and the procedures you need to follow to effect a valid termination. Sounds simple, but a lot of folks forget to do this and then suffer unexpected consequences.

<a href=http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/lienzone/~3/0f0uYYtAMyI/ target=_blank >Is your contractor a felon?</a>

By Alexander Barthet

Can a person convicted of a felony apply for and be granted a general contractor’s license? Admitting he had been convicted of certain drug-related crimes, including possession and intent to distribute, and stating that he had been sentenced to sixty months and was currently on supervised leave, an applicant submitted his paperwork to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to become a licensed general contractor. The Department responded that the application was incomplete and that the applicant needed to provide proof that his civil rights had been reinstated. He could not do so as his civil rights had in fact not been restored. His application was therefore denied when it came before the Construction Licensing Board.

The caller explained that it’s cotton supplier was unable to clear its shipping documents with customs officials.

I asked whether the company had a back-up plan to find an alternative supply.

“No,” replied the caller. We didn’t think we’d ever need one.”
